FAQ + Compatibility | Downloads | Tutorials
I get asked if this toolkit works for Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and other variants such as the Dual-Sim and GPe + Dev Editions. Here I can clarify if anything will not work or possibly break your device.

Q. Will I need to be unlocked (rooted) to use firewater?
A. Yes. Firewater requires root access.

Root while keeping stock recovery!

So in reguards to your question you want to root the HTC One M8 but still be able to get OTA updates from HTC? I'll show you a way of doing it because I like to keep it stock too. Unfortuantely some of the commands we need to use are not in the toolkit so some of the steps will use the command prompt.

If you just want to have a rooted device you don't need to S-Off but you will have to unlock the bootloader.

I'll walk you through the steps into unlocking the bootloader. (This may wipe your data)
  1. Make sure you have ADB Debugging Enabled and your M8 is turned on (its best to not have any security lock screen)
  2. Open the toolkit
  3. Click on the unlock button
  4. Go through all the steps listed on the unlock window

Once you have the bootloader unlocked download this recovery:
Philz CWM Advanced Edition Recovery

Then go back into the bootloader (you can use the 'ADB' section of the toolkit) and make sure its in FASTBOOT USB mode.

Once you are in the bootloader you'll need to open up a cmd window.

Here is a tutorial:
Once that's open you'll need to type:

Code:
fastboot boot
(leave a space after 'boot') then drag the recovery image we downloaded earlier onto the cmd window.

This will load the image to your device and all you have to to now is wait for your phone to boot the image. Once you are in the 'recovery' you should see a orange purple background. Goto:

=> Philz Options (something like that. Its near the bottom of the list)
=> Root device (SuperSU) {its near the top of the list)

This will root your device or at least put the SU Binaries on your phone. All you have to do is reboot your phone. (Keep going back untill you see 'reboot device now'.)

When your phone is booted up just goto the Play Store and download SuperSU by Chainfire. Open it up and you should have root! This will keep the stock recovery so you can install firmware updates later on from HTC.

I hope this helped!

This has HTC DEV and IIRC the files to install superuser through adb?

HTC DEV unlock does not work with Verizon, we get an MID error MID (Model ID) which means Verizon made HTC block our versions of the M8 on their site. (Much like they did for the M7, except those of us luckily who bought on release day were able to sneak in the 24 hours before it was shut down and blocked through MID like is now, and the m8 is (for Verizon))

as for the superuser, that is something that I think could be tried, don't hold me if anything happens to your phone, go at your own risk. I've never used a toolkit so I am not sure, wait for the OP to comment first, perhaps. We have adb working as I was able to extract the Verizon /System using adb pull /system - command.
Root would be very nice even if it's just superuser, I would de-bloat haha.

Sonic is checking to see if his java card will have the correct diag files to give S-OFF, he did a great job doing S-OFF for the M7 community before a software method came.
